This is a really nice and different hotel with a history that dates long back. The building itself says that, looking much like a fortress upon a hill, practically.
Beautiful hotel and some really nice and cosy facilities. Service is mostly welcoming and nice and just makes the whole experience very memorable in a good way. This is a hotel to make traditions. The view from the bar and the very nicely decorated restaurant are beautiful, overlooking the lake below. Also the nearby little town of Gränna is worth visiting, very charming and famous for its red and white candy; the "polkagris". You can find small workshops where this candy is made by hand everywhere around.
The only minus for Gyllene Uttern are the opening hours; the restaurant and bar close really early; also the enclosed "coffee house". For me this really is a big minus, unfortunately.
